The tour was really cool ans you get to see alot of places within 6 days. Therfore the busrides are pretty long but it's ok. The only thing I didn't like was the last day in a ski village becuase it was already off season so we couldn't do ..the normal program that is written down.Read full review

The trip met our expectations. If you want to see the scenery without having to drive or make any travel arrangements, this is the best option. The accommodations were not 5 star but were clean and comfortable. The tour guide Frank and t..he bus driver Pam were exceptional. We always knew the agenda and they worked hard to let us see all we could in the time available. If you select this tour, be prepared to encounter a number of different ethnic backgrounds and the different behaviors they exhibit. We put our feelings on the back burner and did not let this issue mar the tour in anyway.Read full review

I enjoyed my recent trip. We kept a tight time schedule. The hotels were fine and meals were mostly fast food. Bruce was an awesome tour guide and Michael a great driver. Overall a great cultural experience. Everyone was like family.
This bus tour was my very first one. I would recommend it to others in order to get a general overview of a lot of places. We were up every day by 5:30 AM traveling to great locations! Bruce our tour guide was very friendly & knowledgeable ..(walking encyclopedia) and encouraged everybody to be prompt and on time when returning to the bus. Hotels were well worth the money; each one have a different flavor. Got to meet a number of other individuals from China, Peru, Philippines and even America :-) Enjoyed the opportunity to eat at various locations including a number of buffets. Good value for the money and there were no hidden expenses after reading all the information you are provided on the web site.
The only difficulty I had was due to my bad back. I've had a bad back for years - the seats in our bus were designed for smaller occupants and contoured to their body. If you have a bad back and are taller than your typical Asian, you may want to consider trying it out for a shorter trip before moving up to an 8 day tour. Other than that, I would highly recommend this to others. Now I want to go back to Bryce Canyon to explore more on my own! Beautiful country, more people should take advantage of this reputable bus tour company.Read full review
If you like the contrast between majestic mountains and the barren red rocks, this is a must-see tour. In a short duration of 6 days and 5 nights, the tour takes you through five of America's most beautiful mountain states from Colorado to ..South Dakota, to Wyoming, to Dakota, to Utah, and back to Colorado. You will visit the men-made wonder of Mount Rushmore and the nature spectacular of Devil's Tower. You will be exposed to the mystical geothermal activities of Yellowstone and majestic Grand Teton Mountain range. Finally you will see the unforgettable red rock arches contrasting with the seemingly barren Great Salt Lake. in addition to these major attractions, the various side trips to Dever's Red Rock Amphitheater, Jackson Hole, the international skiing village of Vail, and the Rocky Mountain high point of Johnson Tunnel, are experiences that you will not easily forget.- and most importantly, all these at a very reasonable price.
The accommodation were not luxurious but comfortable. The bilingual (English & Chinese) tour guide was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable, and the driver was skillful and safety conscious. The coach bus was new and comfortable. Unfortunately there were a couple seats whose reclining mechanism of which did not work properly. Having to sit in that position for an extended period of time made it rather uncomfortable. Hopefully they will be repaired soon. Also, the back of each seat does not provide a "pocket" for passenger to put things in it - seems to be a design oversight.
Overall, I would say this tour is great value for any nature lovers who want to enjoy the best of what America's mountain states have to offer on a budget that will not break ones bank accounts, and yet at a reasonably comfortable mode of transportation and accommodation. I would recommend this highly.Read full review
